Even though the energy landscape is changing, our facilities are in place for generations and we are unwavering in our commitment to sustainability. This includes commitments to:
- safety of our workplace, communities and our assets
- protection of water
- protection of land and wildlife
- transparently reporting our work on sustainability and matters related to climate change and management of our own greenhouse gas emissions
- building relationships in communities where we work
- Indigenous groups, traditions and lands
We operate in one of the world’s most transparent and robust regulatory environments that provides stringent regulations for the entire life cycle of an energy infrastructure asset. Pipelines are subject to strict regulations by multiple regulatory agencies. We comply with all federal, provincial and state laws and regulations governing the management of health and safety, environment, land use and other material areas of our business.
Managing climate change risks and opportunities
As a leader within the energy infrastructure sector, we recognize our responsibility in supporting innovative and global solutions towards clean, reliable and affordable energy. In our inaugural Report on Sustainability and Climate Change, we describe our approach to long-term sustainability and the work we are doing to ensure the resilience of our business during the transition towards a lower carbon-emissions economy. In consideration of the recommendations from the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), we assess climate-related risks and opportunities, as well as discuss our actions to reduce our GHG emissions in a cost-effective manner.
